Comfort food and family dinner chinese restaurant
I can't count how many time we eat at this restaurant, they have a stabil taste and every time i came here with the same menu and never bored. I always order steamboat, with vegetables, tahu, baso ikan (fishball), pangsit rebus dan goreng (wonton - fried and boiled), hotplate sapi panggang, and always with rice even better with sate babi (pig skewers). Never been wrong if i came here with empty stomach, the ambience is nice, even this restaurant located in chinatown. There's also a stove at every table, the servant cook it for you. Their portion is enough for 4 people /dishes. There's air conditioning room and have quite space, open till midnight for last order.

We went there on a Sunday evening and there were 6 of us. The restaurant is having a renovation on the ground floor. We were seated on the second floor. It’s a new type of hot pot restaurant. Where you ordered proteins, vegetables and all other ingredients. We ordered the some sort of beancurd called kembang tahu, sliced beef, beef tripe, dory fish, tofu, fish cake, prawns and some other vegetables and mushroom. The waiter will then put all the proteins and all other in the hot pot. But not the tofu, vegetables and mushroom. After that they took them out and put them on a plate which already had sesame oil. They gave each of us small portion of sauce with green onions. We then took those cooked stuffs, dipped them in the sauce and believe me they are just delicious. I just could not stop so we ended up ordered more. After we finish with all the meat then they cooked the veggies, mushroom and tofu right there on the table and distribute them on a small bowl so that each one of us had one. The soup is just marvelous since it already had the original broth and the added essence of what being cooked earlier. Definitely will come back to this place. Please be cautious though. Parking is a hell but I heard that they do have other outlets around Jakarta. Great food and very affordable too. Nine hundred thousand rupiah for the six of us......

This is a proper steam boat
I LOVE steamboat... its same with hot pot right? anyway some of steamboat restaurant just focus on veggies and all other stuff just like cake.. fish cake or or meat balls .. in any shape. But hay Thien got you cover with great meat formula that doesn't taste just like frozen food. Nice broth and sauce. Don't like soup, fine.. they have GRILL style also.
